Seven drivers from the Renault UK Clio Cup will look to take centre stage at this weekend’s (July 27/28) Formula 1 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim as they contest the second Clio Cup Open event of the season.
With a grid of more than 30 drivers, all of which will be representing Clio Cup championships from across Europe, the battle for supremacy is set to be fierce across the weekend’s two encounters.
Leading the entry list of UK drivers is MRM Racing’s Jack Young, who will be a firm favourite amongst many heading into the weekend. In June, the Northern Irishman dominated both races at the Formula 1 French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard, winning both races by more than 20 seconds.
Having also triumphed at last year’s International Clio Cup event, the teenager will be eyeing further success as bids to continue his reign over the high-profile event.
Joining Young will be his MRM Racing team-mates, brothers Brett and Tyler Lidsey, as well as Westbourne Motorsport’s own team-mate and brother pairing of Ben and James Colburn.
Westbourne Motorsport will also field a third car for Aaron Thompson once again whilst Specialized Motorsport’s Luke Warr rounds out the list of UK competitors making the journey to mainland Europe.
Just as they had to do in France, once racing has drawn to a close all three teams will hit the road to head home and make final preparations before then heading to Snetterton for the latest event of the Renault UK Clio Cup.
